‘Underperforming’ Antony reveals Man Utd’s issues – first to leave this summer

The Red Devils don’t deserve to be in the FA Cup final, but the £85m ($105m) winger failed to read the room with his classless celebrations.

Manchester United survived a scare of monumental proportions at Wembley on Sunday. After inexplicably blowing a 3-0 lead in their FA Cup semi-final tie against Coventry, they were a “toenail” from crashing out of the competition right at the end of extra-time, with VAR controversially ruling that Haji Wright was offside before providing the cross for Victor Torp to tap home from close-range.

It would have been arguably the greatest upset, and collapse, in the 153-year history of the FA Cup, and no less than the Championship side deserved. But United did eventually get over the line, edging the subsequent penalty shootout 4-2, with Rasmus Hojlund coolly dispatching their decisive fifth spot-kick.

Hojlund was understandably experiencing an adrenaline rush as he ran over to celebrate in front of the United fans, but it was more out of relief than anything else. And when the Danish striker turned around, most of his team-mates were rightly too ashamed to go over and congratulate him.
